Most V-brakes are better than most cantis, anyone that says otherwise just hasn't set their 'V's up right


Nope, but the bike my Canti's are stopping is considerably lighter and has better pads than the bike i had with V's.

Period correct doesn't bother me - but I'm glad it bothers other people.

I use and abuse my bikes so it has to V's if only so I can jump from one to another and not end up killing myself on the first downhill.

I may have to try canti's again for a laugh though :lol:

it would have been easy to spot at least!

Was quite a good detour actually, I enjoyed the steep, rooty, loose downhill!
